2019 Honormen

Being an odd numbered year, it is once again time to honor some of our members for their service to our Valley and Freemasonry in general.

I am extremely pleased to announce that the Supreme Council has selected six of our members to be honored this year. 

To be Coronated a 33rd Degree Inspector General Honorary (White Cap): Wor. Jack Harris and Wor. Randy Downey.

Jack Harris was raised a Master Mason in Liberty Lodge #299 on July 26, 1963. He served as Master of the lodge in 1998 and again in 2008. He is a Golden Veteran’s (50 year) recipient as well as a recipient of the Hiram Award. He served as Senior Grand Deacon for the Grand Lodge in 2010. He joined San Jose Valley Scottish Rite on May 17, 1975. He served as Wise Master in 2012 and Venerable Master in 2015. He was elevated to the rank of Knight Commander Court of Honor in 2009. Jack has been the 18th Degree Director for many years as well as participating in numerous other degree teams. He has served as a Director on the Foundation Board and has been a mainstay within our Valley.

Randy Downey was raised a Master Mason in Downey Lodge #220 on January 22, 1979. He affiliated with Charity Jarman Lodge #362 (now Mt. Moriah Lodge #292) in 1999 and served as Mt. Moriah’s Master in 2004. He affiliated with Santa Clara Daylight Lodge #844 in 2009 and served as its Master in 2015. He is a recipient of the Hiram Award. He served as Inspector for the Grand Lodge from 2007 to 2015. He was installed as Grand High Priest for the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of California in 2017. As well he has been the presiding officer for many other organizations (too many to list). He joined San Jose Valley Scottish Rite on November 17, 2001. He served as Commander of Kadosh in 2014, Venerable Master in 2018 and Venerable Master again this year. He was elevated to the rank of Knight Commander Court of Honor in 2009. Randy has been the 32nd Degree Director for many years as well as participating in numerous other degree teams. He has served as a Director on the Foundation Board and has continually been a guiding force within our Valley.

To be Elevated to the Rank of Knight Commander Court of Honour (Red Cap): Brothers Brandon Duenas, Gerald Harbick, Richard Rosenberg and Jeff Toone.

Brandon Duenas is a member of South Valley Lodge #187 and Golden Rule Lodge #479. He joined San Jose Valley Scottish Rite on May 4, 2012. He served as Wise Master in 2016 and Commander of Kadosh in 2018. He has also been the presiding officer in all of the York Rite Bodies. He is currently the Building Manger for the San Jose Masonic Center.

Gerald Harbick is a member of Thaddeus Sherman Lodge #196. He joined San Jose Valley Scottish Rite on November 15, 2003. He was Master of his lodge in 2008 and 2009 and received the Hiram Award in 2011. He has been a guiding force within our Scottish Rite Club in Paso Robles for many years and is a member of their 22nd degree team.

Richard Rosenberg is a member of Los Altos Lodge #712. He joined San Jose Valley Scottish Rite on November 21, 1992. He was Commander of Kadosh of the Consistory in 2003 and is currently the Master of Kadosh for 2019. He was Master of his lodge in 1984, 1989 and 1986 and received the Hiram Award in 2000. He is very involved with the Order of Eastern Star serving as Patron.

Jeffory Toone is a member of San Jose Lodge #10. He joined San Jose Valley Scottish Rite on May 5, 2015. Although a member for only four years, he has taken a role in many aspects of the Valley. A member of the Knights of Saint Andrew (KSA) in the early years of its existence, he has been a guiding force in making the unit successful. He served as Chief Knight for the KSA in 2018. He has also taken the lead of our technical team ensuring that our Reunions are top notch. His revamping of our computer scripts, visual presentations and sound management have been invaluable to the Valley.

I want to personally congratulate and thank each of our recipients. As an epitome of what Scottish Rite Masonry is about, each bring their own particular value to our Valley. I look forward to bestowing upon them their new caps on Sept. 14th at the Oakland Scottish Rite Center (more info to follow). The conferral of the KCCH degree is open to the public and I hope many of you will be in attendance to honor these well deserving Masons. The 33rd degree is a closed degree, but please help me congratulate Jack and Randy on their accomplishments and their coronation. To each of our recipients, “A Job Well Done”!!
